This is from a t8 Spear user perspective that also has Axe and Sword leveled. axe splits ap arround 1/2 strength mace splits ap around 1/6 strength A long axe might be able to block a long sword strike, but can a long sword block a long axe strike? 2 Likes. Almost no training required, opposed to the years you'd need to fight effectively with a sword or spear. I think a sword or axe would be awesome for a gnome, but a hammer just doesn’t seem my style for a gnome. If the axe was militarily superior to the sword, the sword would never have taken hold as the trained soldier's weapon of choice for the majority of our years of civilization. A normal hit from a sword can feel like a bolt of lightning coming from a spear. Long sword (no shield) vs short axe (with shield), hard to say. The spear is okay and it probably better for general combat because of the reach and the fact it only uses 1 spirit emblem vs the axes 2. Axes are almost as good, but dangerous when wielded in untrained hands (first hand experience on this, and I wasn't even trying to kill anyone). also spear is more efficiency against boars and things like that, in my opinion. Spear wins against axe and loses against swords, and axes are usually only good as shock troopers, they are terrible in a long fight.There is no "better", it depends on what you are fighting with what.

That video also doesn't completely represent OP's battle because 1. the epee the swordsman is using is far too flimsy to represent a real sword. Actually, chances are the spear will get stuck within the first five hits, then the dwarf will die trying to pull it out. You're not going to destroy a body-and-wings blob with an axe, but with a spear, you might just destroy its brain. Haven't really found a good use for the axe aside from obvious shield breaking. Sword -vs- Axe -vs- Mace (-vs- Polearm?) sadly their weapon strength is made wrong in the game. The multiple handholds on a spear meant it could be used in many different ways and the power of a full-body thrust put into one had a massively damaging effect through armor, mail, padding, and bone. Spear of Assal: 14: 85: 10: 1: 9: A: 30: Sacred Weapon. so yes spear worth it. But, all you really need in this game are the Shuriken and Umbrella. The sword raises armed combat to an entire other level. The axe was one of the first tools, and became one of the first weapons of war, but was supplanted by the sword. Axe, even if you’re a human. Restores HP at the start of each turn, effects increased with Crest of Cichol. If I play my gnome warrior, I’ll likely go 2H whatever. Strong vs Armored/Cavalry: Sword of the Creator: 7: 90: 0: 1-2 (1) 9 (19) E: 20: Hero's Relic. Not choosing a CC buff, means you are at the higher range of other melee DPS, although sword/dagger/spear STILL have cc/buff which has a much higher weight to outcomes in open world/PVP and GvG. axe, sword, mace, spear - the one handeds. Last edited by Theokoles; Nov 10, 2018 @ 12:47pm #4. Spears vs axes or equally priced swords.
